FORT COLLINS, Colorado, USA – Remote GeoSystems, Inc. announces the release of LineVision™ Google Earth – a stand-alone application leveraging Google Earth for simple, multi-channel, “track-based” geographic video playback, analysis and project editing.
LineVision Google Earth enables users to geospatially “navigate” a video recording by simply clicking a location along the aerial or terrestrial GPS track positioned in Google Earth. The video then automatically advances to that point in the video so that analysts and subject matter experts can visually interpret what was recoded at that specific place and time. As the video plays, a “cursor” moves along the GPS track, constantly indicating where the current view was recorded. If something of interest is detected in the video, users may also “snap” a still image from the video, which is geotagged and saved for future analysis.
Operators of modern multi-sensor gimbal cameras and mobile video mapping platforms can synchronize playback of up to four simultaneously collected geospatial video files.
Professional applications include:
- Power Line & Pipeline Inspections
- UAV & Terrestrial Unmanned Systems
- Aerial LiDAR & Mobile Mapping Projects
- Border Security & Narcotics Interdiction
- Road & Railway Corridor Assessment
- Humanitarian & Emergency Response
- Military Mission Planning & Review
In addition to video, LineVision Google Earth also supports geospatial positioning of still photos, audio, waypoint notes and pipeline leak detection system (LDS) data.
All these data types can be combined and saved as a .geoSolution project file for easy restoration and collaboration over a local network or on the same computer. Alternatively, users can package projects as a .rgs “Pack & Go” file for ultimate data portability and simple delivery to clients and end-users. LineVision Google Earth can also be customized to package projects in specific formats for later use in third-party systems.
LineVision Google Earth is one of the most open and hardware-independent geospatial video viewers available. It will accept properly formatted video from a variety of off-the-shelf GPS-enabled cameras, gyro-stabilized aerial gimbal systems and specialized geospatial DVRs, including the Remote GeoSystems geoVISE™/geoDVR™ solutions.
